2019 Student Loan Debt Stinks Scholarship Contest
At Nova Legal Funding we work with attorneys and other legal professionals every day. We see first hand the critical role that these folks play in protecting and advancing the rights and interests of the people over the powerful.
As a company that provides monetary advances to folks who are awaiting pending lawsuit settlements (ie. “lawsuit loans”) we recognize that financial stability is essential for mental health and productivity. Our clients come to us because their financial obligations don’t get put on hold while the wheels of justice slowly turn.
We bear witness to the anxiety and stress they experience as their bills pile up. Our mission is to alleviate that hardship so that our clients can focus on what matters most in their daily lives.
In an effort to reward young legal professionals for pursuing a noble profession, and to alleviate the mental strain that comes with financial hardship, we are offering a $2,500 scholarship award that law students can use to pay off their student loan debt.
